Puppy Classes / Obedience Training in Toronto

Hi folks,

As the title suggests, I'll be looking for classes in Toronto. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a place either downtown of west end of Toronto. I've heard good things about "Who's Walking Who" and "When Hounds Fly". I want to avoid PetsMart puppy classes, though. I've sat in on a few with a friend's puppy and was not impressed. It was a very stressful and not fun experience, both for myself and the puppy. It turned me right off of those. I would rather seek out a smaller group in a more structured environment.

I don't have an exact take home date yet, but it's going to be end of February - first two weeks in March when I bring my boy home. I'm just planning in advance. When is a good time to start classes with him? Wait until he has all of his shots?

I'm also curious about possibly doing protection work, but definitely advanced obedience. I have to look into it more, but again, if anyone can recommend a place for when he's old enough to begin, that would be awesome.

Thanks!

Awesome. I've previously had a look at Gemini as well. Definitely worth checking out when the time comes. Thanks for the links!
